    This has been around since 2003. It would be nice if people could submit more recent English fails.

    I love that they spelled rhododendron right, and yet “also” proved too difficult for them.

    And “weekend” became two words. I guess the author is telling us when the end of Memorial Day Week is, even though I thought it was just an observance of one day. I am not a true patriot.

    Geez the more I look at this the worse it gets. Like the obvious reference to the “Sesame Street” character in the first line of the flyer. He sits in a really big nest on the show. It’s not actually a house. Did this person recently stop working for PBS, that they have access to these set pieces? Random spacing. What is a “so squirrel”? Why are all of their feeders on sale? And “Watch for big sign”…is this like falling rocks, where it is an intermittent event, the sign may not always be there?

    @daddy00: The term ‘Memorial Day Weekend’ is used frequently to describe the weekend in which Memorial Day is held, used usually to denote the time of high travel/ commute for the holiday.

    @daddy00’s other points: HAHA those are all hilarious!

    Love the ‘AND ITEMS’, it’s so wonderfully vague, certainly makes a refreshing change from ‘stuff’. Maybe they’re shortsighted and save their proofreading for the BIG SIGN?
